NEW YORK (
TheStreet) -- The U.S. Hispanic population is growing, and significantly so.
According to the Pew Foundation, the Hispanic population has grown to almost 52 million in 2011 from 35 million in 2000.
Of that 52 million, Pew says approximately 33 million are foreign born, or about 6% of the total U.S. population.
To newcomers of any nationality -- and America, after all is a nation of immigrants -- finding their way culturally and professionally is difficult enough. Add money to the mix and assimilating only grows more difficult.
Think about it: Newcomers to the U.S. deal with a new currency, a new language, a new banking and investing system with its own sets of rules and regulations and a new tax system that, no doubt, changes the way immigrants look at money management.
For the growing Hispanic population, a quick and effective path to great personal finance skills is all about education, which is what's offered by the Washington, D.C.-based
Alliance for Investor Education, a consortium of U.S. finance-related groups that includes foundations, nonprofit organizations, associations and governmental agencies.
More specifically, the AEI is out with a list of the best available money management resources for U.S.-based Hispanics. The list is culled primarily from the AEI's list of member financial services organizations.
